ROAST PUMPKIN & BRUSSEL SPROUTS WITH CHILLI & CORIANDER SAUCE

Posted by on

Pumpkin and brussel sprouts are probably my favourite vegetables to roast as they develop a deep, rich flavour particularly when drizzled with a good quality, cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil!   The carotenoids (potent antioxidants) in these vegetables are made much more available by adding olive oil to them … and they taste better.  Brussel sprouts are also an excellent source of sulfurophane, a compound with a number of possible health boosting properties including reducing cancer risk, promoting heart & gut health and keeping your brain healthy.  Inspired by Ottolenghi, we have made a few changes but kept the essence of this delicious dish.
